Religion in Colonial America: Trends, Regulations, and Beliefs
In contrast to other colonies, there was a meetinghouse in every New England town. 6 In 1750 Boston, a city with a population of 15000, had eighteen churches. 7 In the previous century church attendance was inconsistent at best. After the 1680s, with many more churches and clerical bodies emerging, religion in New England became more organized and attendance more uniformly enforced.
